Stayed 3 nights in September...Tuesday to Friday... We booked a spa room but it felt like it was in the basement, but it is not. Bedroom and bathroom are large enought for 2 people but no more than that because it had a lot of furniture, but it really is a fabulous room. We paid about $1400 for the 3 nights for 2 people and really all we did was sleep there. You could not go to the beach as they had no rear entrance you had to walk around the front, at least we could not find any rear entrance. this is kind of strange as the hotel is ON the beach. It was $30 a night to park the car but we drove into Los Angeles and surrounding areas every day so we used the car every day. One night we went up to 3rd street and the atmosphere was brilliant up there...it is walking distance. Concierge was very good with giving driving instructions. If I ever went to stay in Santa Monica again I would stay on 3rd Street. I will review restaurants under restaurants.
